What is Diamond Drilling?

Diamond core drilling uses a rig mounted rotary drill fitted with a specialist cylindrical drill bit. The drill bit has diamond segments welded to its cutting surface. Due to their extreme strength diamonds are ideal for cutting into solid surfaces including reinforced concrete, masonry, tile, stone and asphalt.

Diamond drilling is ideal for creating, or ‘coring’, clean, precise holes ranging from 10mm and 1,500mm+ in diameter in hard materials such as stone, brick and concrete walls or other materials. Diamond drilling is commonly used in construction and controlled demolition. It offers many advantages over conventional drilling methods, as it is accurate, efficient and non-percussive.

How does Diamond Drilling work?

Diamond drilling systems are comprised of a mounted rig, electric, air or hydraulic powered drill, and diamond bit. The diamond drill bit is cylindrical and hollow, consisting of a steel tube on which diamond segments are welded to the cutting edge. These make contact with the surface being drilled.

During drilling, the diamond bit rotates. Water runs through the driving shaft to cool the barrel and flush away the material being cut. Dry diamond core drilling services are available, please Contact Us to learn more.

Diamond drilling systems usually include 110v powered motors, but can also be 415v, hydraulic and or air driven systems.

Factors that need to be considered during diamond drilling include:

  • Type of material/surface to be cut
  • Diameters and depths of holes to be drilled
  • Structural resistance of the material

This will influence the equipment required to carry out the work. Our dedicated logistics team have over three decades of experience in the industry, designing bespoke diamond drilling and concrete cutting solutions for our extensive client base.

What is Diamond Drilling used for?

Diamond drilling can be used to create holes in a wide array of solid materials such as concrete, masonry, metal, glass, tile and stone. It has many applications within the demolition, construction, and underground industries.

Diamond Stitch Drilling

Diamond drill bits range from 10mm to 1500mm in diameter. In some cases, a larger area may need to be drilled. In this case, a technique called diamond stitch drilling is the ideal solution.
Diamond stitch drilling can be used to create openings of any shape and size. This involves drilling a series of precise, overlapping holes to create the desired opening.

Underwater Diamond Drilling

Diamond drilling techniques can be used in underwater environments, making it a good option for marine and offshore projects.
